Billy Gillispie Busted Outside LexingtonPosted by jstevrtc on August 27th, 2009
Lexington media is reporting — downright shouting, to be sure — that this morning Billy Gillispie got hosed for another DUI. Like we didn’t see that one coming right down I-75…
Even though Gillispie was collared at 2:45am, he told the cop that he and his passenger had been golfing. I’ll be interested to see if there’s an additional charge of night putting…you know, putting at night (does anyone get that??). Actually, we’re still in a recession and it IS the day after Ted Kennedy died, so using Rick Pitino’s logic, nobody should be covering this. But I’ll bet he doesn’t mind so much.
If you click the link above, there’s video coverage by the Lexington affiliate, just click the camera beside the title. From our friends at KentuckySportsRadio.com, here’s the mugshot:
More on this later. It’ll be interesting to see if this affects his current legal dispute with the University of Kentucky. Right now John Calipari has to be kicking back in a comfy chair, laughing like crazy and thinking, “And the world thinks that I have a past??!?” Given the events of the past couple of days, we’ll be watching, say, guys like Murray State’s Billy Kennedy and Western Kentucky’s Ken McDonald to see if they happen to lose their minds and do something to raise the bar in the craziness competition that has evidently broken out among basketball coaches in the Bluegrass State.
